Public Safety: The Pictures in Their Heads

Public Safety is finally starting to get the time it deserves in the public conversation; but with an issue so complex and fraught with controversy, it’s easy for messages to get swallowed in the “swamp” of cultural models.

In partnership with the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice at Harvard University’s Law School and Behind the Cycle, and with support from the Ford Foundation, FrameWorks Institute is conducting new research on how advocates can talk about Public Safety to move towards effective policy-based reform.

A new video explains the cultural models that Americans employ when thinking and talking about Public Safety, and explores the gaps between those models and the ways that experts understand those same issues.

Stay tuned for more as we move on through the next stages of our research process.
